Every business that’s bent on success needs to have a streamlined process of going about day to day transactions and storing information, otherwise it may get left behind or become haplessly disorganised in the long run. But many businesses today particularly in the insurance, banking, education and health care industries as well as government sectors still maintain paper-driven processes which more often than not, are tremendously inefficient. Unfortunately, these industries’ complex services may not be so easily delivered in any other form but paper, giving them a huge disadvantage.
In this day and age business processes must be faster, better and more efficient, and paper-driven processes just aren’t going to cut it. To provide convenient and efficient services, businesses need to move online and streamline services with digital and mobile solutions.
The Problem with Paper
Though paper-driven processes have long been applied in many offices, it has never been without its setbacks. First of all, the creation, filling out, photocopying and movement of papers cause much delay in business processes, wasting precious time. When these papers are missing pertinent information they take even more time to complete and may even get lost or destroyed in the entire process.
Another disadvantage to paper-driven processes is the significant cost required to produce and distribute required paper products. Paper products can have a very adverse effect on the environment, and with most markets shifting online and technology making leaps and bounds in development there really is no big enough reason why businesses should still rely on paper-driven processes.
Why Choose Digital and Mobile
With the steady rise of social networks and search engines it is no longer an option for businesses to go online but a necessity if they want to reach and satisfy the majority of their customers. Online processes are faster, more convenient and efficient in delivering what customers want.
But it may be difficult for some businesses, especially those that have relied on paper-driven processes for so long, to shift to a digital and mobile form. Some of the processes these businesses apply can be so complex that moving them online can be very taxing and time-consuming. Thankfully, SmartForm factories such as Avoka have simplified moving processes online by creating digital self-service and mobile field worker solutions.
